I was diagnosed with fibro almost 2 years ago. Throughout my journey so far, I've seen seven doctors, neurologists, rheumotologists and internal medicine. Some have said they don't know what's wrong with me, others have referred on to different specialists. Meanwhile through all of this, I've been on different medication, Cymbalta, muscle relaxers, Gabapentin, and the list goes on and on. However, not one of them would ever prescribe me any kind of pain relievers. I've had one doctor flat out tell me no because you could sue me if I got addicted. Most of others said that they wouldn't help that I needed to be on a preventative for my nervous system.
I can't believe that this is true. Yes, I understand the point of a preventative as I've battled migraines since 2011 but I also had pain relievers. At this point, the pain is so bad that I find it hard to work (I work from home) or carry out any daily activities. Even after telling doctors this, they still refuse to help.
Has anyone else had this problem?
